West Ham United

Thank you for your fascinating article about West Ham United. See: ICN 20 January 2016 Will Catholic links be broken when West Ham United moves to the Olympic stadium? www.indcatholicnews.com/news.php?viewStory=29258 It was wonderful to learn about the Catholic connections with the club, the history of the Boleyn ground and hear the marvellous stories about Fr Denis Hall.

As Hammers supporters we owe a great deal to the Catholic Church and I hope the links can be maintained somehow even after the move to the Olympic stadium. A plaque perhaps?

Are there any plans afoot? Perhaps something for the John Paul 2 Foundation for Sport to look into?

Yours sincerely
